The past few days I’ve been enjoying summer in Ithaca with some friends. It really is quite lovely here in summer (at some point I’ll take pictures and share).
This morning I woke up and walked with my friend, Sara, to the farmer’s market.
The exciting thing for the day was that today was the first pick up day for my CSA!
CSA stands for community support agriculture. They’re an easy way to eat locally and often organically. Basically you buy a “share” which allows you to get a “box” (in my case a bag)
of vegetables (and sometimes fruit) each week. If you’re curious about getting a CSA share in your area click here.
The farm I chose, Early Morning Farm, allows you to “shop” so you basically take as much as you need. I got 2 bunches of lettuce, some turnips and a bunch of rhubarb (I skipped the radishes since I’m not a fan).
I’ve never tried rhubarb before! I’m excited to give it a whirl. You’ll probably see it here for the next few days. But before that I had to use my lettuce to make lunch
Went well with some multigrain sourdough I got at the farmer’s market too!
Well I’m off to read for fun! I’m reading The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, loving it so far.
Recommend any summer reading books?
